Did you already look up her civil birth record in Ancestry.com and verify that her father is not named? Is a baptismal record available? If you were able to find those records and your paternal grandmother's civil birth record and church baptismal record don't have the father's name then you are in a tough situation since you have to rely on DNA testing and not many people in Mexico know about genealogical DNA testing or even care to get genealogical DNA testing once they learn about it and that is if they can even afford it.

Apart from that, Ancestry.com, and 23andme, don't even ship kits to Mexico so that reduces even more the amount of Mexicans in those databases and if none of the close relatives of your father, through his unknown maternal grandfather, migrated to the U.S. then they would have to test with FTDNA Family Finder.

If a close relative of your father, through his unknown maternal grandfather, migrated to the U.S. then they would have the option of testing with FTDNA, Ancestry.com or 23andme. So you would also want to test your father with 23andme if there is not a close match at FTDNA.
